Breast augmentation ranks at the number one position among leading cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. While the success rate of the procedure is very high, it is important for the patient to understand its pros and cons and choose breast augmentation only after careful deliberation. The breast surgeon will discuss all about the procedure during the initial consultation to help her make an informed decision.
Many surgeons also prefer to present breast augmentation before and after photographs during the pre-operative consultation phase. The patient can review these photos carefully to know about the potential effectiveness of the implant surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Nasir provides breast augmentation to patients in New Haven, Westport, CT, and surrounding communities.
What are Breast Augmentation Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of breast augmentation plastic surgery refer to a set of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has received the same surgery with successful results. The set includes pictures taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-op swelling and bruising has been resolved and full effects of breast augmentation can be seen.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that breast augmentation before and after photographs are obtained with the patient’s express consent and presented before new patients in a discreet way. The patient’s confidentiality is maintained as required. The surgeon’s only goal in this case is to educate new patients about all aspects of breast augmentation and help them to make well-considered decisions.
Website photos will be mentioned again down below but this point cannot be emphasized enough. Digital technology has altered the landscape for about every business domain across the hemisphere. Now people can see vivid images without leaving their home.
With the simplicity and efficiency that website technology offers human kind people can now make critical life altering decisions without having to picture what to expect while listening to someone speak, such as the surgeon or one of their staff members. They no longer have to rely on vague brochures that only offer a snapshot of really what is going to happen during this breast augmentation procedure. Website pictures can allow someone to take their time and make the right decision based on their needs and proclivities.
Breast augmentation is a highly customizable procedure. The patient will have to be involved in decisions about the location of incisions, the type of implants, and the placement position of implants in the breasts. When the patient has access to before and after photos, she will be in a better position to understand the surgeon’s explanations and make the right decisions.
Some women may need smaller sized implants, while others may need large implants. They may also be unsure whether to choose round or anatomical shaped implants. These issues can be resolved more easily when breast augmentation before and after photos are reviewed. Therefore, an experienced cosmetic surgeon will prefer to present these photos before the patient.
Having Realistic Expectations
Patients who have a positive frame of mind, clear aesthetic goals and realistic expectations will typically achieve better satisfaction levels in any cosmetic procedure. The surgeon will encourage them to review as many breast augmentation ‘before and after’ photos as possible in order to form realistic expectations.
This will mitigate the risk of any disappointment at a later stage for the patient and will work in the benefit of everyone involved. Dr. Nasir receives patients from New Haven, Westport, CT, and nearby areas for breast augmentation surgery.
The surgeon may choose to provide breast augmentation photos on their website for free access to all. New patients can easily review the photos online in the comfort and privacy of their home or office, and then decide whether to seek a personal consultation with the surgeon. Because website technology is where it is at, the surgeon’s time is saved and the patient is more informed which means they are more comfortable with their decision.
